Yes, I do admit it's a big mistake on my part.

This D70 is my first dSLR and I was too excited with my new 70-300mm.

I took out my D70 from my lowepro bag without double checking on the POWER. I left the power ON from my previous use which was about 1 hour ago. Then I removed the default 18-70mm lens and replaced it with 70-300mm lens. Then I proceed to turn it on, and it was already on.

Luckily everything seems fine. I still can take good quality picture with the new 70-300mm lens on the D70.

My question:
Will it have any long term effect on the lenses and D70 body?

I know I should be more careful. **SULK** **SULK** Since I am a beginner, I bought all the cheaper version of equipment to try out first before upgrading to better lens or camera body. I know, that is beside the point, D70 still cost me a lot of money....
